    All I Can Think About Is Quilting! What do you do when all you can think about is quilting and all the things I want to sew and the quilt tops I want to quilt and then new things that I want to buy next. Of course right now I am daydreaming of that long arm quilting machine, but where in the world would I put it? My stash is everywhere....! Well I used to own a quilt store but when I moved from Arizona to Utah I had to close and all my inventory came with me. I have too much stuff! My kids can't even walk around. Soooooo....... I made a website and put my inventory online. Anyone interested... please because I need more room in my house for my long arm quilting machine. Well I don't know if I will really ever get the long arm quilting machine but it is soooo fun to day dream about. In order to get traffic to my site, I am putting everything on sale that I have uploaded so far for 20% off. The website is www.stitchesquilting.com and the coupon code is 20STITCHESLOVE . I still have a ton of books and patterns to upload to the online website but it is quite tedious. I have so many things that I want to sew that I can no longer sew because I am having to figure all this technical stuff. Oh well... daydreaming daydreaming and thinking of more things to create with love to give to those around me. Please go look at my site because it has been so much work and I just need someone to say it looks good. My husband and kids are just not understanding how exciting it is. Can't wait to learn about all of you. May the work of your hands delight the soul,
    Deanna

    Hi Deanna. You just have the quilting/fabric disease...that's all it is. Don't worry about it, it's ok.

    Oh Deanna I can so relate to being obsessed w/ the whole quilting thing. I was reading a novel by Jennifer Chiaverini and I hadn't seen the quilt being discussed so I got out my history book on quilts and ya well that lasted until 3 am last night. I don't go anywhere w/o trying to get a trip to the LQS. My dream would be to travel around the country visiting quilt shops...so yes I too am obsessed.
    BTW..welcome from cedar city ut.

    Hi Deanna,Welcome,from the "SNOWY" state of Ohio! I can really relate to how you feel. All I want to do is, Quilt,Quilt,Quilt. I just purchased a Quilt Frame and it hasn't been delivered yet,(because of all the "snow" were getting) I'm getting a little nervous cause I have to learn how to use it,But I'm sooooooooo thrilled, it has always been a long awaited dream to own one. And yes I did have to do some rearranging to get it in my sewing room. Hang in there you eventually will reach your goal. Take care, and let us know how you are mannaging. PattiL

    Welcome from Scott Depot WV. I just joined the website this week and find myself going and looking all the time. I just started quilting in January this year. Its all I think about. I finished my 1st lap quilt and the next day started my jellyroll. Day after I finished it I cut out another one. I find I absolutely love picking out the fabric. It took me 2 1/2 hours to pick out the fabric for my lap quilt. All I could think of was my next quilt I'll make it out of this. My husband bought me a new sewing machine so I've got to get his moneys worth right?

    I'm confused. There's something else to think about other than fabric and sewing? ????
